Metro heard from more than 1,300 community members this year when we asked for public input on our ideas for improving Routes 3 and 4. Together, these routes carry more than 11,000 riders each day, but are often stuck in traffic along James Street near the I-5 on-ramps.
Metro is considering whether to move both routes from James Street to Yesler Way, Eighth Avenue, and Ninth Avenue (see map) to improve their speed and reliability.
Based on what we’ve heard so far from community members, Metro will study ways to improve bus reliability and continue to serve riders’ needs along James Street. We plan to present updated proposals in summer 2018 and depending on the findings, potentially conduct another round of public outreach.

Why move it either direction? If you do anything move it off Jefferson, that’s where the real back ups happen.
Here’s a cost effective idea. Continue the same service currently we have going up the hill Eastbound on James. Cause senior citizens can’t hike up the steep hills like that.
Westbound will use 9th ave, 8th ave and Yesler continues on 3rd ave. This will completely avoid the I5 traffic nightmare during rush hour and still serve people on James
